Everyone dreams of lifelong financial security, but for many people it remains just that – a fantasy. But what if you won the lottery? One big jackpot and you need never worry about money again.
Drawn weekly in Finland’s capital city of Helsinki, the EuroJackpot lottery is one of Europe’s biggest lotto games. Launched in 2012 and similar in style to sister lottery Euromillions, it’s played across multiple countries – in this case Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. Tickets can also be purchased online by players in other countries such as the United Kingdom.
Drawing winners from a number of countries may mean there’s more competition for the big wins, but it also means that the EuroJackpot jackpot can reach astronomical levels, as winnings are pooled from ticket purchases across all participating nations. There’s also a rollover facility; if a jackpot is not won in one week, it’s simply added to the following week’s total. This means jackpots can go as high as a massive 90million euros!
This is not an all or nothing lottery; players can take home one of 12 different prizes, available in all EuroJackpot draws. And so what if your odds of getting jackpot-winning EuroJackpot results are one in several million? It’s the taking part that’s the most fun – there’s really nothing like the rush of waiting, EuroJackpot tickets in hand, to see if your numbers come up.
EuroJackpot is an incredibly easy game to play. Players simply choose five main numbers, plus two additional ‘Star’ numbers. To win the jackpot, one must match all seven numbers. There is a minimum guaranteed jackpot prize of an amazing 10 million euros! Smaller prizes are also available, the least of which is won by matching just two standard numbers and one Star number.
